is fighting Darryl Cunningham, this saturday. I am a huge fan of Dirrell, I think he has some of the quickest hands in all of boxing including Mayweather. So excited to see him fight again. I knew he was using an excuse to avoid fighting Ward but I don't blame him. So excited to see this fight, I will have my money on Ward. Share your thoughts please.

Dirrell wins big, gets a bigger fight, I am sure he'll fight Bute, even in Canada! I don't think he should fight Ward yet, cause Ward will be tough to bea,t plus they are good friends (remember Bute-Johnson, I think Bute held back out of friendship) they should only fight when they are 1 and 2, and the public really wants to see or pay to see.  Why not have Dirrell fight Abraham in a rematch (revenge) first atleast? I wouldn't mind that, it would have good action.

Dirrell should fight AA or Froch again.

I don't think he will fight Bute anytime soon. I think he will work some scrubs for about 3 more fights and then go after Bute. He is quick enough to beat Bute but gets tired in late rounds. 
 I was going to disagree with fighting AA but now that I think about it, he should as long as he is conditioned to go 12 rounds. AA is not as good as everyone once thought (exposed in the super 6) but is a good name for Dirrell to beat again. 
 One last thought; Dirrell will never fight Ward, too close of friends. Dirrell will wait for Ward to move up in weight or something of that nature to avoid fighting him. I believe it was planned for Dirrell to sit out with a "Head Injury" till the Super 6 was over.

Dirrell can't beat Ward so he has nothing to gain right now, AA would be a good matchup because they both need a big win and I'm sure both guys didn't like how the first fight ended, he fought good against Froch and I wouldn't mind seeing them again. Whatever Dirrell does he should take whatever comes his way and make the best of it, win, get another big fight, their is alot of comp. at 168. AA isn't a 168, he like Pavlik and Jermain, should have stayed at 160 (like BHop did even when it was hard to make weight).
